Pours in a great pristine copper color that turns your vessel into a great beer goggle. Looking through "rose-colored glasses?" How about looking through this amazing colored malted hop glass? The world will look a lot better I promise!!!! Average white head on the Torpedo.

Great floral and star-fruit smell a hint of currant and oak.

Enters the palate full, creamy and dreamy. Great hop characters. Piney, raisiny and a hint of citrus and maybe apples come to mind.

Warning this beer will lend to contagious de-capping. Heavy enough to enjoy one or two but leaves you wanting to come back for more and more.

Thank you Sierra Nevada for making this IPA. It's something I've been waiting for!
